Hot Tub Buying Guide

Organic alternatives

You want to have a hot tub that is enjoyable for your relaxation and use. You also want to be sure your hot tub is safe for you and your family and friends. You certainly don't want to cause harm to any of your soaking companions in any way. Some folks believe that treating your hot tub water with chemicals can be harmful to those who enjoy a good soak. Of course, there are alternatives to using chlorine and bromine as your sanitizers. There are quite a few options for those who want to go this route, but before you make that choice, consider a few things.

The first thing to consider is if the water in your hot tub would be unsafe if you used chlorine or bromine. If you properly maintain your hot tub keeping the levels all where they should be and regularly check and clean your tub, the use of these sanitizer should cause you no harm. It's very likely that you have more chlorine flowing through your household faucets than you do in the hot tub. See the chlorine does its job and then dissipates so you aren't soaking in highly chlorinated water. Your personal hot tub shouldn't smell like a public pool or spa. You should add your sanitizer after soaking, it does its job and is consumed that way and the water remains healthy.

The second thing to consider is cost. Many of the more "natural" choices are quite costly. Some people think this cost is worth it to protect their skin and health. But does it really protect you any more than chlorine? Many of the alternative methods do not eliminate the contaminants that come from the people who soak in the tub. These alternative methods are not sanitizers and cannot deal with sweat, dirt, urine and other filth. They claim to limit biofilms, but other contaminants will build up over time and can cause damage to the tub. If you choose an alternative method to keep your tub water clean, be aware of the limitations.

Another consideration is that you will need and ozonator that will ozidize the bather produced pollutants if you choose an alternative. Chlorine oxidizes that waste - and you may still find that you need an occasional dose of chlorine to keep your tub safe and healthy.

Some folks who use an alternative method do find that they need to treat their spa less frequently, but with a good regular routine, the care of your hot tub should never be overwhelming.

Whatever method you choose to sanitize your tub, be sure to keep your hot tub water healthy and safe. You have a hot tub so that you are able to soak and relax. With regular care and maintenance, your tub should always be ready and available for you and your family and friends.
